Talking About Lacrosse Principles and Gear

Welcome to my site. My name is Bennett McCavanaugh. I would like to talk to you about the exciting sport of lacrosse. When I first picked up my lacrosse gear, I was confused about how the game would work. In particular, I was unsure about what my role on the field would be exactly. Luckily, I was able to watch a few games and see how the players interacted. My coach also helped us learn about our roles on the field. I would like to use this site to talk about the different ways lacrosse players use the field and their gear. Please visit often to learn all you can about this fun sport.

Want To Do A Sport Using Knives? Become A Knife Thrower

by Julia Hart

Sports in which you use knives are alluring, because there are not many sports where knives are the primary tool used. Below is information about one type of sport you can do, which is knife throwing. Become an expert in this sport and you will amaze your friends and family, because it is likely that not many people you know will be able to do it:

Knife Throwing

If you choose the sport of knife throwing, you will stand in front of a wooden bullseye and throw your knife so that it sticks in it. You will likely start out at a short distance, and then slowly increase it. This may sound like it is something easy to do, but you will quickly find that it is difficult.

There are different throw styles you can learn, such as spinning, no spinning, straight, and spear. Because this is a very dangerous sport, it is important that you get some training before you go outside and start throwing knives. Talk with an employee at a store that sells knives, who may know of training in your area, or you can find training videos online.

There are different types of throwing knives you can purchase, and what you choose depends on the type of throwing you want to do. For example, there are knives that are specially made for spinning, those that resist breaking and bending, and made specifically for knife throwing competitions. Once you learn how to throw a knife at your target, you can start hitting the bulls-eye.

Sharpening Your Knife

You have to keep your throwing knife sharpened so that it will stick into the bulls-eye. Because most throwing knives have a double-edged blade, it is best to use a slot sharpener.

You can purchase a slot sharpener at most knife shops or online. Place it on the table or some kind of flat surface, and secure it in place with you hand. Set the blade of the knife in the slot as close to the knife handle as you can. Pull it towards you, then back to the starting position, and repeat approximately five times. When you are finished, turn the blade over, and sharpen the other side in the same manner.

If you do not want to do it yourself, you should be able to find knife sharpening services in your area, or the company you purchase your knife from may sharpen knives.

Once you get good at knife throwing, you should consider entering some competitions in your area to show off your talent. To learn more, contact a company like Al & Bob's Sports with any questions you have.
